Last week, I celebrated my 35th birthday. It was a wonderful week spent with family and friends. However, my in-laws don't live near us, so they were unable to celebrate with me. They sent money instead, and I did what any good food/healthy living/fitness blogger would do. I bought new stuff, which I ordered online. All of my new stuff came today. As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing as exciting as coming home from work to find packages on the front porch.
Here's what I got:
I am so excited to look through Mama Pea's book. I love her blog, and I know her book will be full of the same fabulous meatless recipes she posts each day. I can't wait to start cooking. The Broner V-slicer is my third mandoline. I'm hoping I actually have success with this one. I really want a good mandoline to julienne vegetables into my salad. I have tried two others so far, and have not been satisfied. The first was a Cuisinart mandoline, which didn't slice well. The second was a Pampered Chef mandoline, which did not have a julienne blade. So, I'm hoping the third time is the charm. I'll let you know how this one works out.
It looks like I have a busy weekend ahead of me. I have new recipes to try and vegetables to slice. I'll see you on Monday with reviews of both.
Have a great weekend!
